Arlington, VA – Freedom Partners Action Fund (FPAF) today announced its endorsement of candidate Ron DeSantis in his campaign to serve as Florida’s next governor, pointing to his strong leadership in Congress on important issues, including economic growth, health care reforms, and education initiatives.
Freedom Partners Action Fund spokesman Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:
“Floridians want in their next governor a strong leader willing to take on issues that most seriously impact their lives, and Ron DeSantis’s record in Congress proves he will be that governor. His priority is the people he serves, working to grow our economy by supporting regulatory reforms and rejecting corporate welfare, improving the quality and affordability of health care, and growing opportunity in education. Ron DeSantis puts Florida’s communities and families first, and is the best choice for the state’s next governor.”
A native Floridian, DeSantis has a long record of service to his state and country. He is a decorated Iraq war veteran who received the bronze star medal for meritorious service and the Iraq campaign medal. DeSantis graduated with honors from Yale University and Harvard Law School. He was elected to represent Florida’s 6th District in Congress in 2012. DeSantis’ voting record demonstrates a commitment to promoting fiscal responsibility, government accountability, and Americans’ First Amendment rights. He also served as a federal and military prosecutor.
